What is Personal Data?
The law defines Personal Data as any information relating to a person who can be directly or indirectly identified by it.
Your Personal Data cannot be stored or used (“Processed”) without a lawful basis for doing so. A lawful basis for processing is provided either by a valid business need (such as Personal Data we need to process in order to perform financial transactions) or, in the absence of such a valid need, explicit consent from you.
Why do we hold Personal Data?
We maintain records, which contain Personal Data, for various purposes:
- Marketing: We keep lists of people who we may contact with company or product information.
- Customer operations: In order to provide support and other services to our customers we keep lists of people in various roles.
- Doing business: We keep details of prospective customers, as well as current and past customers. We also keep details of suppliers and partners.

Personal Data held on Customer Nervecentre Systems
The Nervecentre product is a software solution for healthcare; it is deployed on premises owned or controlled by our customers.
If you are or have been a patient or member of staff at one of those organisations, some items of Personal Data may be held on their Nervecentre system. For staff the data will include your name and may include your email address, job title and information regarding your role. For patients the data will include demographic information such as your name and age, may include additional demographic information such as your address and GP details, and may include health record information related to your condition and treatment.
Personal data held on Nervecentre installations is controlled by the organisation which owns that system. Patients and staff should therefore contact the organisation in question if they have any questions regarding data privacy.
